I have seen this topic come up multiple times, but can’t find any feedback that provides a solution. It is very annoying. Please fix this problem.
Whenever I click on a link that has a document I want to view, Brave will only provide the option to save the file. The document can be a word document, powerpoint, excel or other text file application. Firefox, Edge and Chrome launch the application to view the document, but not Brave. This has become so annoying that I run another web browser just to be able to launch an application to view a file rather than saving it. Please update Brave to provide the option to launch an app to read a document rather than being forced to save the file.
